  • Getting Here

    Getting to the Chamonix Valley is really easy: it is 100km/62 miles from Geneva Airport and takes one hour.

    You can either make your own arrangements to get to our hotel in Les Houches or we will pick you up for an extra charge.

    If you would like us to pick you up from Geneva Airport it costs an extra £40 person and we will pick you up between 08:00hrs/8am and 20:00hrs/8pm. It is the same cost for the transfer back to Geneva Airport.

    If you prefer to book it yourself, Mountain Drop Offs provide a professional and frequent shuttle service between Geneva Airport and the Chamonix Valley. Please see their website here: www.mountaindropoffs.com/

    Geneva can be reached from 17 airports in the UK and Ireland. It is well-connected with the USA, Canada and Australasia. Both Chamonix and Geneva Airport can be reached by train from the UK. You can also drive to Chamonix in approximately 10 hours from Calais. Please do not book non-refundable travel before we guarantee your departure.

  • Accommodation on the TMB

    We stay at a mix of 2 and 3 star hotels and spend one night at an auberge. Occasionally this may vary and we will inform you at the time of booking your holiday if this is the case. For eight of the ten nights you will have a bedroom with private bathroom. For two nights (3 & 8) there are shared facilities.

    All hotels have WiFi except for the night at Les Chapieux (night 8). Please note that some of the WiFi can be very slow and you may be better using your data.

    You can easily extend your stay in the Chamonix Valley at our hotel. Please ask us for details and prices.

    The hotels offer meals for vegetarian diets. Some of the hotels cater to other diets, such as vegan and gluten-free, but others hotels do not and so we are regretfully not able to guarantee this. It is best to bring some supplements with you. Gluten-free bread is not available at any hotels on this trek.

    The hotels on the TMB do not like to offer single rooms and so we are unable to offer this.
